According to reports, Barcelona are set to complete the signing of German wonderkid Noah Darvich.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, has confirmed that Barcelona are set to sign Freiburg’s 16-year-old talent, Noah Darvich.

The youngster is still under contract with Freiburg, but both sides have been working on agreeing a fee to finalise the deal.

The negotiations are at an advanced stage, and it appears that Freiburg will receive an upfront fee of €3m, including add-ons bringing the overall package up to €5m.

Noah Darvich captained Germany under-17 to European Championship glory earlier this summer, where he scored two goals with four assists.

It is unclear whether Barcelona will look to integrate Darvich into the senior team straightaway, or put him for further development in the La Masia academy.
